The new branch in Hanoi will supplement its already-existing Ho Chi Minh City office, said Michael Deisemann, managing director of Dachser's air and sea logistics business in Vietnam.
"Many manufacturers - particularly those in the textile, shoe and electronics industries - have established production facilities in northern Vietnam," Deisemann said. "The branch office will provide air- and seafreight [FCL and LCL] to Europe, Central Asia and the U.S., and will also offer warehousing and value-added services if needed."
In addition, the logistics firm is moving to a new regional office in Tsuen Wan section of Hong Kong, merging airfreight, seafreight and logistics services into one location, said Nils Holder, managing director for Dachser's Hong Kong division of air and sea logistics. The Dachser transit warehouse in Tsuen Wan will continue to be used for airfreight, while the branch office in Tsing Yi will handle contract logistics, he said.
The Mumbai office, in the Sakinaka commercial district, is now located closer to its customers, near the international airport, said Frank Guenzerodt, president and CEO of Dachser USA.
